Ethical Blind spots – Excellent Information from Ann Tenbrunsel – University of Notre Dame

As part of my daily quest to expose the “why’s” of ethical failures, I came across this video and found the explanation and presentation quite helpful.  Many times as a business ethics speaker, I have people want to focus on more than the “How” the failure happened, but more importantly “Why” it happened.  Ms. Tenbrunsel (perhaps Dr. Tenbrunsel) shares practical ways that – as she puts it – ethical blind spots prevent us from clearly seeing the truth of a given situation.

From personal experience, I can identify with how facts and circumstances combine to create those “ethical blind spots” and allow for the rationalization of unethical behavior.

What do you think of Tenbrunsel’s comments?
